Materials & The Environment

Construction is considered the third largest industry in the country, generating a revenue of more than $360 billion. Unfortunately, it is also a major contributor to pollution and waste.

Construction equipment and plant machinery are responsible for a huge percentage of climate change, energy usage, and, of course, landfill waste. However, they will always have an essential role to play in the success of any project. It is why it is more important than ever to learn how to manage waste produce from construction. A waste management plan should be in place to handle the different types of construction waste, including building materials.

Materials are the leading causes of rubbish in any remodelling, restoration, or demolition project. You’ll easily find building waste, including insulation, electrical wires, scrap metal, plaster, wood, nails, bricks, and more in just one site.

Finally, hazardous waste is often found in all construction, remodelling, and demolition projects. The materials can be anything from lead to asbestos to paint thinners. These materials should be disposed of properly. There are strict laws that should be considered before removing them from one area.

Our blog aims to provide useful information in dealing with materials found in construction sites.
